There is the Museum Trail that runs from the parking lot east down a hill and then up stairs to the Trestle Bridge Trail. Turn right (south/west). Trail will cross over Wellington 18 and then a big bridge over the Grand River. After a short distance the trail will cross South River Rd. Trail continues straight and the next road crossing will be Bridge St. and is 2.4Km from the parking lot now. Another approx. 1km gets you to the end of trail and a Tim Horton’s. Note - during COVID lockdown conditions no in store sit down allowed, only takeout. Washrooms may be open to the public?
